Several members of the Fletchers team helped our local communities get into the Christmas spirit over the weekend. The team from Fletchers Maroondah were out at the Maroondah Carols, whilst our Canterbury team headed down to Maling Road for the Kriskindl Festival. It was a great night out for the whole family, with plenty of Fletchers balloons to be seen!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
